Tech mahindra -Interview Experience Visakhapatnam, September 3, 2014
TechM visited our campus on 3rd September. Written, tr and hr everything will be done in a single day. So b prepared for the 3 rounds.
TechM has mainly 3 rounds.
1) Written test (online).
2) Technical round.
3) HR round.
Coming to the written test. It mainly includes 3 sections i.e., verbal, reasoning, quantz.
But these 3 are sub divides into 11 sections. We can start with any section we want.
Verbal topics:- (100 bits, max spend 20 mins):
Direct and indirect speech.
Active passive voice.
Synonyms and antonyms.
Subject verb agreement.
Guys please please concentrate on verbal as it consists of 100 bits. And the cutoff for verbal is 60-70. We can score max of our marks in verbal only.
Go with prepositions, articles, tenses, direct, active, subject verb first. Because they are damn easy. Want take more than 15 mins. Lastly go with comprehensions. They are not difficult but takes time. Be fast while reading at the same time understand the rc. That's it guys if you are speed accurate you can complete it of in 20 mins. If you feel you are crossing 20 mins then you will be at a danger zone. Then go for reasoning.
Reasoning:- (50-55 bits, max spend 40 mins):
Problems on alphabets.
Reasoning bits are easy but we need to do a lot of practice. So that in the exam noly by seeing the question itself we will be able to apply the logic immediately. Figure analysis may take time. So manage it. Lastly quantz.
Quantitative aptitude:- (15-20 bits, max spend 15-10 mins):
Simple and compound interest.
Profit and loss.
Speed time distance.
Time and work.
Please don't go for quant section first. Though we can do aptitude sometimes it may take time and also very less bits are given so weightage is low for quant. So it will be better if you attempt it at the last. Study the basic formula and methods.
Reasoning and quants consists of total 70 bits and the cut off is 35-45.
We will have 170 bits and only 80 mins.
But don't worry guys this time is more than enough for us. Because the questions will be that easy. Trust me. I was left out with 20 odd minutes in my exam.
Remember guys you and the person sitting beside you will not get the same paper. So avoid copying like things.
One small tip for written is when you dont know the answer choose the option as 3. Because 25% of the answers will be option 3 only. Mark it only when you don't know the answer.
Fortunately we don't have negative marking and hence answer all d questions.
150 wrote the written test and only 43 were qualified. So depends on completely how you make use of the valuable 80 mins.
After written they will ask us to write a small essay on the respective topic they give. This is just only to see our written skills. It is not an elimination round.
After that we have to submit d documents like 10th to B-Tech certificates, id xerox, essay paper along with the application which they will give after the written exam. Then comes the technical round.
Fortunately my tr is awesome. My tr interview was the longest. It took 45 mins. He did not ask me any questions related to my subjects nor even c. I am basically ece background. But my friends were asked question related to our subjects and small c programmes. My tr asked me to write a program which I couldn't. But I was through that round. So even if you don't know d answer they are not bothered. They just luck for your attitude how can you manage a situation how expressive and positive minded you are.
But cse guys you have to be strong with your basics because they are ready to put question on your subjects and programs. Non cse can go with the basics of your subjects.
Out of 43 27 cleared the tr round.
Finally the hr round. The most easiest, funniest round. Because once you are through the tr round you are max placed. Our hr is cool. Very friendly. He asked me question like where do you want to see yourself after 5 years. What qualities should a leader have, are you ready to sign the bond, are you ready to do night shifts. that's it. I am not giving the answers which I told him because you prepare your own answers and ask yourself in front of a mirror. Answer them and rate yourself. So that when you are in hr chamber you will not feel the pressure. And use very simple and good English which is understandable. No need to use difficult words to show ourselves before them. Remember guys don't ever try to bluff them. If you are caught then you are out. Know about the company and if you have done any projects then prepare them also. Because definitely they will ask question on that.
All of the 27 got placed finally at the end of the day.
Guys they want a massive recruitment. They are ready to take as many as possible and so stay cool and calm and put your 100% effort. Your 4 years of B-Tech will be decided in just 4 mins. So be yourself.
This is my first interview and I cracked it. Self confidence matters guys.
My sincere advice is try to clear the written test. You will have 95% of the chances.
All the very best for all those who are aspiring to become a TechM engineer. Hope will meet you guys there.
